The USA is morphing into something that would be foreign to our founders because they found a way out of colonies of disagreements.
It does not matter whether one is a democrat or a republican. It does not matter if we choose to be a conservative or a liberal. What matters is our commonality based on our belief in the rule of law. That is what a republic is.
Right now we have contention in all aspects of our collective society. Respect for different shades of opinion is missing.
Democrats choose policies and arguments favorable to their political thinking.
Republicans choose policies and arguments favorable to their political thinking.
Conservatives want less to be the national base.
Liberals want more to be the national base.
What each of us, no matter our thinking, no matter our personal or party preference, must choose is what is best for our “Republic, ” or we may crumble the foundation of our democracy.
Congressmen and women choose not for your party. Choose only for the Republic, for the rule of law. Neighbors and families in political disagreement choose not for your singularity of want, but for our commonality of life and living.
We have pledged allegiance to the republic which stands for the United States of America. Let us stand united and acknowledge with respect the diversity within our oneness.
